The Apostle Peter wrote to a bunch of Christians, scattered throughout what is now modern-day Turkey, who were starting to feel the pinch of suffering for their new-found faith in Jesus. He writes to give them an understanding of what they now had in Jesus that would enable them to stand firm as exiles in the face of hostility.
His letter touches on the glorious beauty of salvation in Christ and how this empowers us to live set apart lives for God’s glory by trusting Him in the face of persecution, striving to honour Him in our interactions with the world, understanding the place of suffering in our lives, and living with humility and grace.
We will spend 10 weeks discovering the truths that are contained in this letter and consider how they will inform our lives as exiles in the world today.
